This information is helpful! However, I guess what I'm trying to say
is that I'd like it if MultiViews defaulted to a type-map before any
other file. The original post I made at really explains
a lot in terms of functionality that I need.

Is there a way to tell MultiViews to default to a type-map if one
exists, and if not, then make up its own type-map? This is how I
thought content negotiation was supposed to work...
